Have a listen to Icona Pop´s new song ‘Emergency’
Icona Pop took the airwaves by storm with This Is … Icona Pop, the 2013 full-length debut which heralded smash singles like “I Love It” featuring Charli XCX, “Girlfriend”, and “All Night”. Now, it looks as though the Swedish synthpop duo might be plotting its return, today releasing a brand new single in “Emergency”.
Icona Pop (English /aɪˈkɒnə pɒp/) is a Swedish Electropop duo that formed in 2009, with electro house, punk and indie pop music influences. The two members Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo, who grew up in Stockholm, create music “which you can both laugh and cry to at the same time”. They signed to TEN Music Group in 2009. Their biggest hit to date has been “I Love It“.
The duo received international attention following their debut single “Manners”, which was released by Neon Gold on French labelKitsuné, and the extended-play album Nights Like This on English Mercury Records. Since September 2012, the duo have been based in Los Angeles and New York City in the United States.
On June 23, 2014 the duo released a new single called “Get Lost” which gained less international attention. In the same period, the duo also performed as the opening act forKaty Perry and Miley Cyrus tours. They also collaborated with Tiesto for the song “Let’s Go” and with Cobra Starship for the hit-single “Never Been In Love”.
